History

Johor Bahru Inner Ring Road commenced construction in 1996 with the objective of diverting traffic not destined for the centre of the city to bypass it through the ring road that connects all four arterial highways and major roads leading into the area.


The construction was divided into three phases:


Phase 1

From the Tanjung Puteri Customs Complex/Jalan Sultan Ibrahim to Jalan Tebrau (Tebrau Highway), this 500 metres section links the Malaysia-Singapore commercial vehicles customs complex to Tebrau Highway, one of the two major arterial highways into the city. This 6 to 8 lanes section comprised two ground-level traffic-lights controlled intersections with provisions for future tri-level interchange, and a two-level interchange with provision for future tri-level interchange. This phase was opened to traffic in 1998.


Phase 2

This 600 metres elevated section from Jalan Tebrau (Tebrau Highway) to Jalan Abdul Rahman Andak comprises only one interchange of 25 metres high, roughly equivalent to a four-storey building. It links Tebrau Highway to Jalan Tun Abdul Razak (Skudai Highway) near Plaza Best World. The tri-level interchange was the tallest traffic interchange at the time of construction in Malaysia. This phase was opened to traffic in 1999. Skudai Highway (Lebuhraya Skudai), also known as Senai Highway (Lebuhraya Senai) or Jalan Skudai, is a twenty-nine-kilometre partial access highway from the town of Senai to the Johor Causeway which connects Malaysia and Singapore. ...


Phase 3

This 3.5 kilometres section runs from Jalan Abdul Rahman Andak to Jalan Tun Dato Ismail near the City Square clock tower, or Dataran Bandaraya Johor Bahru. It comprises four ground level traffic-lights controlled intersections with provisions for future dual or tri-level interchanges. This phase was opened to traffic after multiple delays in 2001.
